Additional Information

Georgian vernacular style public house, built in the Late 1700s Probably around 1770 on Market street directly opposite the entrance to the Cloth Hall (opened 1766) to provide accommodation for visiting traders. One of over 20 inns located in the town Centre by the 1780s many of which where built or extended around this time to cope with the increased volume of visitors brought to the town by the booming textile trade.

Extensive alterations made to the building over the years mean that few external indications of its true age remain.
